Looking to find a short term fix to retrieve data off my Maxtor Shared Storage Drive Model H01R300
I thought I lost the power cord, so I took the unit apart and tried to plug the drive in using a SATA/IDE to USB adapter, but found out that the drive is of a propitiatory format. Some how in putting it back together and plugging it in I think I shorted the 12V TVS.
I have read that by removing the TVS, the unit should work, but I'm not exactly sure of where the TVS is. I have attached a photo of the circuit board and if anyone can provide further info, I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, if this work around doesn't work, would anyone know where I might find another circuit board or get this one replaced. A schematic would work as well
I did try downloading DiskInternals to try and read the drive, but it didn't seem to find any files

"but found out that the drive is of a propitiatory format."
are these drives not EXT2/3 ? if not , what are they?
If so your USB adaptor would work under a linux distro live CD.
